The state’s Portuguese past is most apparent in its plazas, cathedrals and architecture and a few Portuguese claim that Goa retains more of the old world heritage than most of Portugal. A fun way to explore Goa is by renting a bike or scooter. They are easily available, but you must have an International Drivers License and provide passport details. Although best known for its massive stretch of magnificent, palm tree-lined beaches along the Arabian Sea coast, Goa offers other attractions, for example; the Portuguese Catholic Church of Old Goa, St. Anne’s Church (an ornate marvel from the 1600s) and the Basilica of Bom Jesus. The surrounding countryside is dotted with luxurious old estates built by wealthy Indians (many of whom converted to Catholicism), including Braganza Palace, which is open to the public. Stay overnight at hotel in Goa.
